Manjaro XFCE Stable Fresh Install Random Freeze Problems

Hey so I just downloaded and fresh installed the latest version of Manjaro XFCE Stable from the Manjaro website. I came from Ubuntu 18.0.4 and Windows 10 Dual-Boot and after a good cleanup, I am now with a Windows 10 and Manjaro XFCE dual-boot.

After finishing the install, everytime I log in, after some time like 10-15 mins or less, it just freezes, I can move my cursor and use keyboard but nothing happens.

I tried to run the commands on the guide to give you guys info about hardware and so on but cant even do that.

My PC is running a MX150 Geforce GPU and a i7 8550U.

Any tips on how I can provide more info, or what to do, since I can't do much because everything freezes midway.

We need more than that.
inxi -Fxxxz
from terminal, copy that text and paste it here, using ``` above and bellow it.

I tried running that command, it freezes before it shows anything.

Did the freeze happened on Live Media? If you still have the USB install, boot from it and make some tests, see what is different and if you can get that information from terminal.

Will do.
Wait a min.

That particular model will require this in order to work better

So... should I post my output of the command? or activate bumblebee in the non-livecd install?

Oh nevermind, I should do this tutorial: [HowTo] Set up PRIME (output offload) with NVIDIA proprietary driver right?

@bogdancovaciu I've been trying to follow the tutorial but I cant even remove the bumblebee thingy, freezes before I even get a chance.

In order to avoid that freezing thing, you will have to do it from TTY. Boot in runlevel 3 - aka at Grub Boot Menu press e to edit it; on the kernel line replace quiet with 3 and then press F10 to save it and continue booting; it will drop you in TTY, log in as your user and do what is mentioned in the tutorial from there.

Have been trying to google the mhwd commands to remove bumblebee but I cant seem to find them. And the tutorial doesnt have them.


Thx! I think i've fixed it already, managed to acess the Manjaro Setting Manager without freezing and fixed it. Atleast its not freezing now, I think!
